On Saturday August 25th, I attended the grassroots Paul Festival in Tampa, Florida with press credentials. The celebration of liberty attracted others from around the country and here are some photos I took.
The gathering is a tribute to Ron Paul, the Republican Congressman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate from Texas. It's been called "three days of music, entertainment and activism."
Speakers included Peter Schiff, CEO & Chief Global Strategist for Euro Pacific Capital; Gary Johnson, Former Governor of New Mexico; Michael Scheuer formerly of the CIA and many more.
Paul Festival happened a week before the Republican National Convention, taking place now in Tampa.
Inside of the building, there were numerous vendors that sold Ron Paul and other liberty oriented merchandise. There was Ron Paul pop art, a libertarian party booth, Official American playing cards, and much more.
